Eric Bolling’s son found dead

Former Fox News anchor Eric Bolling’s son died Friday night, Yashar Ali reports.

“Very sad news, Eric Bolling’s son, who was only 19, died last night. By all accounts, Eric was incredibly devoted to his son. Heartbreaking,” Ali tweeted Saturday afternoon. TMZ and Mediaite report that Eric Chase Bolling Jr. committed suicide, but so far there is no official word on cause of death.

Eric Chase Jr. pre-prom. My guy is growing up.

Bolling Jr.’s death came just a few hours after Fox News announced they had dropped Bolling following allegations he had sent unsolicited dick pics to female colleagues.

Ali, who broke the news about Bolling’s sexting scandal, is being sued by the former host of “The Five” and “The Fox News Specialists.”
